Where to Find Free Clipart for Your Website, Article or Offline Project

Sometimes, finding the right images and clipart can be extremely time consuming and take up more time than we would like. This is why it often isn't a good idea to simply hop on Google and do a search every time you wish to locate some useful but more importantly - free clipart.

One of the most effective ways, I have found, in my own online adventures is to seek out the lists of the best places for free clipart and there are many, believe me. However, another easier way is to create your own list of where to find free clipart as this will cut down on any unnecessary cyber space trudging you would rather not have to do every time.

Needless to say, I created my own list of 'where to find free clipart' and here it is for you all to enjoy.

Where to Find Free Clipart - 15 Great Places

Okay so there is 'free' clipart and then there is 'ugly free clipart' which is free because it isn't very popular or so little work went into its creation that it simply isn't attractive enough to charge for. There are several criteria that free clipart needs to meet in order to pass as 'good' free clipart, these are:

  • Modern looking
  • In color
  • 3D objects and people that can be easily inserted into documents

Anyway, with that in mind, I selected the 15 best websites for free clipart. Here they are.

1. Openclipart.org

This is possibly the best of all the free clipart websites with its well designed clipart easily scalable due to each of the files being SVG. Completely ad-free, this site is very easy to navigate and allows you to find what you need fast.

2. WWW.clker.com

With a wealth of vector clip art, all of which is royalty free and available in several file types - SVG, PNG and ODG this is definitely one of the best free clipart sites around.

3. Artvex.com

Apart from a dodgy search tool that sometimes fails to return any results at all, this is actually still a very good site for free clipart with over 10,000 clipart images.


4. Wpclipart.com

With tens of thousands of images, this is one of the biggest directories of free clipart the web has to offer.

5. About.com

About.com has a wide variety of free clipart styles and genres and is also a great place to find seasonal clipart for those projects you are doing on holidays etc.

6. Clipartlord.com

This an awesome free clipart site because here they collect all the 'best' cliparts from around the web and compile them into one huge collection. Some quality images here.

7. School.discoveryeducation.com

Although this is an educational website, there are still hundreds of consistently excellent graphics available for download. All free clipart is made by the same designer.

8. Sweetclipart.com

A very simple site with a collection of simple but varied fee clipart images. However, the site's simplicity makes it extremely easy to find an appropriate image for your project.

9. phillipmartin.info/clipart/homepage.htm

This site is great for free clipart because the images are stunning in their color and design. A good resource for kid's and teacher's projects alike.

10. Mycutegraphics.com

As the name suggests, this is more than just a clipart site, with backgrounds, animated gifs and coloring pages available all easily accessible with the streamlines search feature.

11. Hasslefreeclipart.com

Although this site has lots of ads, they aren't obtrusive and don't affect your use of the site in any way. The free clipart here is colorful and cheery, making it perfect for creating teaching materials.

12. AAAclipart.com

AAA Clipart is a great site because of the huge array of free clipart images available there. The only downside is the watermark on each image, meaning some images are too overshadowed by the mark and not so useful. Still, the wide variety of free clipart makes up for this.

13. Classroomclipart.com

Full of advertisements which can be annoying at times, but there are some very nice-looking images here. The free clipart here is cartoony.

14. Free-clip-art.com

Although the site itself is bland, the actual free clipart available is very well designed and high quality.

15. School-clip-art.com

There are a lot of great images here for use and even though they are a little on the small side, they are still well designed enough to make up for that limitation. Worth a look at.

Now you know where to find free clipart, you can save yourself a whole lot of Googling!

        Hello younghopes, :)

        Yes, you can use these. You just have to reference the owner of the clipart with a textlink, and that's it.

        Take care.
